Clubs threaten to boycott League unless FIFA lifts ban

Teams in Kenya’s Premier League have vowed not to participate in the league’s 2022-23 season until FIFA lifts existing ban.

Following a meeting on Wednesday morning, the teams said the ban had greatly impacted them, to the point of losing crucial sponsors.

“Our teams and by extension our players and technical bench officials have greatly suffered since FIFA suspended the country in February this year. Our teams have lost several key sponsors and missed the value of playing in a FIFA recognized leagues and competitions,” read a joint statement by the teams.

“To that effect, we have unanimously resorted that we will not be taking part in any competition that is not recognized by the World governing body FIFA. Its only by playing in a FIFA sanctioned league that our players, teams and the country at large will benefit,” they added.

The football governing body asked the government in February to overturn the Cabinet Secretary’s order of November 2021 appointing a caretaker committee in place of the elected FKF Executive Committee.

FIFA stated that the suspension would be lifted only after receiving confirmation from the FKF and its administration that the premises are once again under their complete and unconditional authority.

FKF President Nick Mwendwa recently announced his comeback to the organization in a letter to FIFA President Gianni Infantino on September 8, 2022. Mwendwa brought numerous FKF officials, including Doris Petra, the FKF’s vice president, Secretary General Barry Otieno, and Michael Kamure, the FKF’s head of integrity, to the Goal Project at Kandanda House in Kasarani, more than 10 months after they were ousted.

Sports CS Amina Mohammed, who supported the decision to remove Mwendwa from the offices, described the move as a break-in.

The league was set to resume next month.
